Real Estate Final Walkthrough rochester mn

When you're buying a home, one of the last steps before closing is the final walkthrough. This is your chance to make sure your home is just how you want it to be when you finally get to move in. It will make you feel more confident about your closing. This is also the time to find any last minute problems that need to be taken care of before moving in. Here are some things you need to know about your final walkthrough.  

  • Schedule your walkthrough no later than 24 hours before closing. They should take about 30 minutes to an hour.  

  • Be very thorough. Check for any issues that might have come up (like if there's been a lot of rain, check for water, etc.). Once you close, any remaining repairs are your responsibility. 

  • Check appliances: turn on the dishwasher, washing machines, etc., check outlets and light switches. Consider requesting warranties. Ask for manuals. 

  • Make sure all furniture that you've requested to stay in the home is there or, on the flip side, make sure everything that you don't want is out of the house.

  • Make sure any repairs you have asked to be done have been made. 

If you come across any problems, you have a couple options. You can postpone closing until any repairs are made or problems are resolved, or you can walk away all together if there's a problem that just cannot be solved.  So take your time during the walkthrough. You'll feel a lot more relaxed at closing time.
